Gegga / Helga Birgisdóttir
is an active Icelandic artist, a creator and a smiler! She is very
versatile in her art and she works with paintings, sculptures and functional objects. She has
participated in many groups as well as solo exhibitions in Iceland and abroad. Influences
from her former occupation as a midwife can be seen in her art as her
focus is on love and the creation of life
Gegga
 believes we are all designers – creators of our life and experience. We all have the
tools; thoughts, words and actions – and endless possibilities. To be aware of our strength
and power is a great gift that changes our lifes in the direction we choose. Everyone
understands a SMILE – it is without borders, doesn’t need a language and is a sign of love
– all over the world. The smiler received  document of recognition at EUWIIN 2011,  the
European Union Women Innovators & Inventors Network. Gegga is writing a book about the
philosophy behind the smiler. Information about it will come later on this site
